A little more about me
Chris Powell is Director of The Event Expert. He specialises in helping individuals and teams design, plan and deliver their own high-quality event experiences. Chris has been designing, planning and delivering events for the past 20 years. He has been a local authority events manager and events director of a range of events and festivals, as well as helping a variety of organisations to deliver their events – as a freelance events manager and coach. For the past 17 years, he has also been helping a wide range of businesses, associations and public sector officers develop the ideas, skills and confidence to go it alone: run their own events.
With some 500 events successfully completed and over 3500 events managers trained, Chris knows a thing or two about the ‘how to’ organising the perfect event. He is also author of the ‘How to deliver outstanding corporate events’ and ‘How to deliver successful events books. Both books are practical, step by step guides to planning successful corporate and public events respectively. Incidentally I love a good event – organising or attending them! I also believe that with the right kind of help we can all be great event planners.
